Travel directions

De US 160 in Springfield.

At the village of Mindenmines, US 160 in Kansas from Pittsburg enters the state of Missouri in the southwest of the state. The road then continues east for 20 miles before crossing Interstate 49. Then the US 160 continues inland to Springfield, which is about 110 kilometers to the east. This route leads through an area with some hills and forests and a few villages. On the north side of Springfield it crosses Interstate 44. The road then runs through the west of the city and intersects on the south side with US 60, which forms the southern beltway. US 160 then runs about 60 kilometers south, a short distance parallel to US 65, which one eventually crosses near Branson, after which US 160 continues east through the southern Ozark Mountains, past Bull Shoals Lake, a large reservoir on the border of Missouri and Arkansas. The road generally remains about 15 miles from the Arkansas border and continues through the Mark Twain Forest. Then follows a 150-kilometer route to West Plains, a small town at the intersection with US 63. Then follows another 150 kilometers through the woods to the end of the road. On the way you pass only two larger villages and the road ends just before the town of Poplar Bluff on the US 67.


US 160 was added to the US Highway network in 1930. The eastern terminus at the time was the city of Springfield. In 1954 this was changed to Poplar Bluff, giving US 160 a fairly long double numbering with US 65. US 160 has never been of great ongoing importance. Although the route serves the larger city of Springfield, US 160 does not connect the city with other important places.

US 169 was added to the US Highway network in 1930, and its southern terminus was Kansas City at the time. In 1936 the route was extended further south to Tulsa. On September 9, 1956, the Broadway Bridge over the Missouri River in Kansas City opened to traffic. Until 1991 this was still a toll bridge. US 169 was later provided with a number of grade separated intersections in northern Kansas City and is a freeway especially along Gladstone. This section is called the Arrowhead Trafficway. The part further north is of secondary importance.


It is planned to replace the Broadway Bridge over the Missouri River in Kansas City with a new bridge, called the Buck O’Neil Bridge. As part of this, US 169 will connect directly to I-35 heading south, eliminating the current traffic light-controlled connection.
